Food very very good. Large portions. We ordered one beef tenderloin plate and a salad and when we said we were going to split them they divided the order for us. The horchatas were stellar. Even with one order of meat between us we brought some home. Very very tasty!

We have been coming here for years and have become quite regulars at Guajimbos. I have to say that I always get the same thing though and that is the Chicken Parmesan. I just love the marinara sauce that they put on top! I have recommended that dish to many people and they all love it as well, just be... More

Ordered the steak tenderloin - cooked perfectly, so delicious. Definitely try out this restaurant. A tip - if you sit near the street the dogs will pester you a little bit do no harm!!

Whenever I am in Pana, I always head to this place for steak. Not only are the steaks delicious, but also the chicken and the burgers. You get huge portions here! Raul, the only server (there for 15 years) is so friendly and professional. This place is well worth the money. Plus, we enjoyed the live music.

Most plates ordered came wrong. Could've ask for changes because the server was very busy. My friend's steak was ok. So basically do not order anything else than steak.

If you are in the mood for steak, look no further. We were hungry, but still could not finish our steaks, which were perfectly cooked to order. There is an English menu and the wait staff are used to English speakers. It's fun to watch the street from the tables as the foot traffic on this main street is constant... More

Fantastic Uruguayan cuisine. Portions too large but prices very very reasonable. Service is excellent. If youv r made friends with vendadores, they will find you here. The dining room is open to the street so people watching is a great past time while talking with friends. Highly recommend.

Thank Vasaul
